          Abstract

          This study examined the perception of sound quality in different mobile devices (from smart phone to small, then larger tablets) that were matched in physical sound characteristics. A sample of 39 participants were tested on different mobile devices sizes (small- iPhone, medium- iPad Mini and large- iPad) and in different usage contexts (generic content vs. musical training app contexts). Preliminary results showed that the users’ perception of sound was affected by device and usage context. However, these differences in perceived sound quality may not be the most important quality to consider within these devices. Instead, considerations such as ease of use seemed to drive considerations for uptake of applications.
